Two giraffes are in a lorry. A man moves them. The lorry goes on a road.

The lorry has no roof. This transportation is bad. The giraffes are not safe. The lorry goes under a bridge. One giraffe hits the bridge. Its head is injured.

The man takes the giraffes to a vet. The injured giraffe dies. The second one is fine. The driver can get in trouble for this.

Difficult words: lorry (big car for moving things), roof (the top of a car or a house), vet (doctor for animals).
